A petition for a daily mail service on this route is being quite extensively signed at the post office and if it shall be granted the regu lar mail stage will be run daily in .stead of tri-wcekly as at present.

United States Commissioner Law rence has received a lot of new plats of townships in this district, show ing all entries, their character and date, and he is prepared to supply blue prints to all wlio want them. He also has arranged to receive checkings from Lakcview and will have the latest , available informa tion touching Jgnds of the Upper Deschutes valley lying in that dis trict. The freighters Moore and Stroud nrrived Wednesday with two six horse loads from Shaniko, five tons each. Though they were nominally for the Hend Mercantile Company, most of the freiirlit con sisted of household goods for S. H. Dorrance and J. M. Lawrence, who now deem themselves entirely moved to Head. This freight was about six weeks coming in from Portland. Have you noticed how the ap pearance of "Dad" West & Co.'s new meat market .suggests n hu man skull? The two tinner win dows form the eyes, the depressed upper door tltc nasal orifice and the window sash of the front form the teeth. The coat of white paint now going on the .structure will not rem edy the- matter. The peculiar marking of the building may tend to make late travelers on Wall street more temperate in their hab its. The Hend Mercantile Coninauv will have a irrand onenintr utxm the completion of its new building and the arrival of its full stock of eoods. The date is yet a little uncertain because ot the difficulty of trans porting large quantities of freight from the railroad, but it will le about two weeks hence. Manager Grant has emraied Broker's Con cert Hand for the occasion and will have evcrvthinc readv for a nronor celebration 01 tins notable event in Heud's commercial history. There is considerable delay in getting the machinery for the P. II. I). Co.'s new mill, at the ditch line three miles up the river. A new engine and boiler and other equipment for the mill are supposed to be on the way from Portland. This will do away with the neces sity of moving the plant from this place. The new mill will have nearly three times the capacity of the old one. Men are at work saw ing and hauling logs to the new lo cation, so there will be plenty of stock to saw when the mill shall be ready to work. This may be two weeks -or more heneck CELEHRATED THE FOURTH. Many Visitors In Hend find tho Day Well spent. Between 300 and ,-500 people par ticipated in the celebration of the Fourth of July here this year. It was an orderly and patriotic crowd and there was plenty of enjoyment for all. The funds subscribed were ample for all excuses and the cel ebration committee is able to show a clean bill of excuses as well art a creditable celebration. Of course Young America opened the day with his firecrackers. Shortly before 1 1 o'clock the crowd gathered in the park south of the postolfice and the exercises then followed this fXIKIMAMMIi. I.

The $10 purse went to the Bend organized team. The two balls at West's hall were entirely successful. For the Fri day night dance the receipts were $27 and Saturday night the attend ance was more than twice as great but only $13 was realized, the price being but half as much and some of the dancers not paying even that. A'ery satisfactory music was sup plied by A. H. Kennedy, Mrs. Broker and Harry Broker. Solid and liquid refreshments were served in the room under the dance hall. Saturday evening there was a gorgeous display of fireworks at the I store of the Hend Mercantile Com jpauy. Manager Grant entered I properly into the spirit of the occa sion and sent sky rockets and Ro I man caudles ripping aloft, with piu ' wheels and various color devices to vary the picturesque programme. , The display drew a large crowd. 1 Mrs. Drake narrowly escaped in jury in the morning by a cracker hanging fire. She had lit and thrown the cracker in the grass in front of the house. It failed to ex plode in the usual time and site picked it up. As she raised it near her face it exploded, filling her face with smoke and burning a large hole in her waist. Fortunately no fire reached her face. A Priueville man named Sports .mau created some disorder at tltc dance late Friday night and was ejected fcom the ballroom. Ihis was the only case of disorder re ported during the celebration. Sat urday Sportsman was thrown from n horse he was riding at the races, but he was not injured. The full financial report of the celebration will be made at a meet ing Saturday night. Roughly, there was collected from citizens' sub scriptions $ 48, 50, of which $30 went for race prizes, $10 for baseball purse and $8.50 for incidentals. The dances were slightly more than self-sustaining. The lumber for the platform and seats in the park was lent by the P. B. D. Co. and it was hauled to the grounds by CM. Doukel and returned to the lumber yard by Arnt Amic without charge. Miss Wiest contributed the service of her cabinet organ at tltc dances and at the park. Weather Report for June.
